EXPLANATION. 



Iii the following genealogies, numerals in parenthesis, after names, 
refer to the same numbers in Roman characters, denoting heads of 
families of the same surname, thns : Judith, dau. of Samuel Batchel- 
der (7) m. Nathan Blake (10) means — Judith, whose father was Sam- 
uel, of the seventh Batchelder family, married Nathan, father of the 
tenth Blake family, as here numbered. Birth, death and fact of mar- 
riage are given in the record of children of the several families. Date 
of marriage and particulars of home and life are carried forward to 
the record of the same children, as heads of families of the next gen- 
eration. The numbering refers backward as well as forward, and a 
little attention in the outset, to the simple system employed, will 
enable the general reader to find the place of any person in the gene- 
alogies with perfect ease. The family indexes display the whole 
arrangement of the large families, each at a single view. The abbre- 
viations b., bp., m., unm., and d. denote respectively — born, bap- 
tized, married, unmarried and died. H., No. H., H. F., N. P., K., 
and Ki., denote respectively — Hampton, North Hampton, Hampton 
Falls, Newburyport, Kensington and Kingston. 

If errors are found, let it be remembered that town and church rec- 
ords, family records and cemetery inscriptions often disagree, and 

perfect accuracy is then hard to obtain.

GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL. 



ABBOT. 

Rev. Jacob Abbot, sixth pastor of the Congregational church in 
Hampton Falls, was descended from Georg Abbott, 1 of Andover, 
Mass., who came, it is said, from Yorkshire, England, about 1643; 
married Hannah Chandler; died 1681. He had thirteen children, of 
whom the eldest, John, deacon of South church, Andover, was bora 
1648 ; died 1721 ; had eight children. His eldest son, John, also dea- 
con, died 1754, aged seventy-nine years ; had four sons, of whom the 
eldest, John, captain, died 1793, aged eighty-nine yeors. He had 
five sons, of whom the third, Abiel, deacon, Esquire, married Dorcas 
Abbot, settled in Wilton and had ten children, of whom the second 
was Jacob, the Hampton Falls minister. 

I. Jacob Abbot, clergyman, born in Wilton, N. H., Jan. 7, 1768 ; 
graduated at Harvard College, 1792 ; ordained pastor of church in 
Hampton Falls, Aug. 15, 1798, Rev. Jesse Appleton, of Hampton, giv- 
ing the right hand of fellowship. His contract for salary was 300 
silver dollars and the use of the parsonage. He married in Boston, 
Feb. 11, 1802, Catharine, daughter of Rev. Ebenezer Thayer (1). 
Though '-he discharged faithfully, affectionately and with acceptance 
the duties of the ministry," and was esteemed and beloved, a portion 
of his pastorate of nineteen years was somewhat troubled, on account 
of the rise of other denominations. Mr. Abbot himself became a 
Unitarian. He was dismissed, Oct. 23, 1827, and removed to Wind- 
ham, where he spent the remainder of his life. He was drowned by 
the upsetting of his boat, Nov. 2, 1834, as he was returning from pub- 
lid worship across a pond between the meeting-house and his home.

BACHILER— BATCHELDER. 
I. Eev. Stephen Bachiler was the progenitor of all the Hampton 
families of this name, the first pastor of the church and minister of 
the town. He was born in England in 1561 ; came to this country, 
1632 ; founded the town of Hampton in 1638, and built his first home 
here, where Mr. Isaac Emery now lives. He had then a second wife, 
named Helena. (It is thought that her last name was Mercer.) Mr. 
Bachiler had children, grown up and married long before he migrated 
to America. Of these, only one, Mrs. Hussey, is known to have come 
to Hampton. There came also, grandsons, the Sanborns (1) (2) (3) 
and Nathaniel Bachiler, or Batchelder, as he was accustomed to write 
his name, and as it is now commonly written. Mr. Bachiler's wife, 
Helena, died , and he married, third, probably about 1648, Mary 



After a residence of more than twenty years in America, he returned 
to England, where he died at Hackney, in 1660, in the one hundredth 
year of his age. [See Chap, xix.] 

Children, from whom Hampton families are descended : 

A dau., who m. John Sanborn, and prob. d. in Eng. 

A son, the father of Nathaniel (3). 

Theodate, m. Christopher Hussey (2) ; d. Oct. 16, 1649. 



II. 



Bachiler, or Batchelder, the father of Nathaniel, 



though he did not come to Hampton, is noticed here, as through him 
the subsequent generations are to be traced back to their first American 
ancestor. 

III. Nathaniel Batchelder, son of the preceding, born in England ; 



590 HISTORY OF HAMPTON. 

came to Hampton early in life ; married, first, Deborah, daughter of 
John Smith, of Martha's Vineyard, sister of John (2) [and niece of 
Ruth Dalton (1)?], Dec. 10, 1656. She died Mar. 8, 1676 ; married, 
second, Oct. 31, 1676, Mary Wyman, of Woburn, Mass., widow of 
John Wyman and daughter of Rev. Thomas Carter [and cousin of his 
first wife?]; third, Oct. 23, 1689, Elizabeth, widow of John Knill, 
who survived him. He died suddenly, Jan. 17, 1710, aged about 
eighty years. 

The following anecdote is told of him : When, after the death of 
his first wife, he had determined to many again, he resolved to be 
governed in his choice b} T the direction in which his staff, held per- 
pendicularly over the floor, should fall, when dropped from his hand. 
The experiment being tried, the staff fell towards the southwest, and 
in that direction he bent his steps. Having travelled as far as Wo- 
burn, he called on the widow Wyman, and offered her his hand, stat- 
ins: that he was going to Boston, and would call for her answer, on 
his return. 

Mr. Batchelder settled first on the house-lot now in possession of 

Joseph Snider; but later in life, where Walter J. Palmer now lives. 

He was twice, at least, chosen constable ; was one of the selectmen 

nine years. Children :

BOGART. 

I. Francis D. Bogart, sea-captain, born in Bucksport, Me., made 
a home for his family in Hampton. Here, his only child, Emma A., 
grew up and married Nov. 24, 1880, George F. Merrill, son of Lowell 
F. of Hampton Falls. [See Merrill (1)]. 

Capt. Bogart died in Hampton, Dec. 20, 1885, aged fifty-one years. 
His widow removed to Boston. 

BOULTER. 

Nathaniel Boulter had received a tract of land in Hampton and had 
sold it to William Howard previous to July 8, 1644, when, in answer 
to the question whether he "were an inhabiter of Hampton," it was 
decided as follows : "The townsmen do judge that he was an inhab- 
iter, and therefore approve and confirm the bargain between him and 
Howard." In 1645 he was living in Exeter. Not long after, perhaps 
about '47, he married Grace, daughter of Richard Swaine (1), and 
possibly returned to Hampton at that time. 

Hampton Court, 26th 7 mo : 1648: "It is ordered by this court 
that Nathaniel Boulter is fined 10 s for a lye in open Court affirming a 



» 



thing ag* two witnesses. 

"Nath 1 Boulter being convicted the second time of drunkenness be- 
fore the worshippfull M r Rich: Saltonstall \ajinde according to Law 
20 s ." 



GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL. 613 

July 4, 1660, Boulter bought of John Barrett, "Ensigne of Wells 
in y e county of Yorke in New England" about 100 acres "lying up 
Taylor's River by the Indian Graves (called James Wall's farm) ;" and 
Sept. 4, he received from his father-in-law four acres, more or less, with 
all the orchard growing on it off the easterly part of his house-lot, 
"abutting on the meeting house green" [at Rand's hill]. Also, Swaine 
gave to Grace the rest of his house-lot, westward to the fence of the 
heirs of William Swaine, except a small parcel, about one acre, in the 
custody of Moses Coxe, to be kept fenced by him, he having married 
W illiam S waine's widow. This seems to have been preliminary to Rich- 
ard Swaine's removal to Nantucket. July 6, 1663, he conveyed to Boul- 
ter one- half his purchase there and gave him a power of attorney to 
do business in Hampton. Four years later, Nathaniel and Grace Boul- 
ter sold to Hannah and John Souther, minor children of John and 
Hannah Souther, a part of the Swaine land (one acre — the little par- 
cel fenced by Coxe), described as being bounded south by "another 
part of s d lot now taken by execution by Capt. James Pendleton," of 
Portsmouth. The same year Boulter sold to Daniel Dow two and a 
half acres of planting ground west of the Souther acre, together with 
one share of the cow common and one share of the Great Ox Com- 
mon. In 1673 Pendleton sold the homestead to Richard Oliver. Boul- 
ter seems to have been a man of ability but not altogether prosperous.

lived on Rand's Hill ; died March 14, 1693. Children :

614 HISTORY OF HAMPTON. 



BRABROOK. 
I. John Brabrook (written also Bradbrook, Braybrook and Bra- 
brick), was of "Watertown in 1 6-iO. He received a grant of land in 
Hampton the same year, but apparently remained where he was for a 
time, as he had sons born iu Watertown : John, born 1642. Thomas, 
born 1643. He died in Newbury, June 28, 1662. 

Rachel Brabrick, probably his daughter, m. John Fuller (3) ; d. Jan. 16, 
1715, se. 60 y. 

BRACKETT. 

I. Anthont Brackett, Captain, son of Anthony, of Portsmouth, 
lived in Falmouth (Portland), Me. On the 9th of August, 1676, some 
Indians killed one of his cows, and he complained to a chief, named 
Symon, who promised to bring the culprits to him. Two days later 
Symon appeared, early in the morning, at the head of a party, and 
said : '"These are the Indians that killed the cow." Then they en- 
tered the house, seized the guns, and asked Capt. Brackett whether he 
would go into captivity, or be killed. He preferring captivity, the In- 
dians bound him, his wife and a negro, and carried them and five chil- 
dren away as prisoners. In November following, Captain and Mrs. 
Brackett, one child and the negro made their escape in a leaky canoe. 
The wife, Ann, died soon after, and the remainder of Capt. Brackett's 
life is identified with Hampton. 

He married, second, Nov. 9, 1678, Susannah, daughter of Abraham 
Drake (3). The historian, Drake, says: ""When Col. Church had 
the memorable fight with the Indians at Casco, Sept. 21, 1689, Capt. 
Brackett was killed. After this, his wile and children went to her 
father's at Hampton, but finally returned to their possessions." But 
their children's births are recorded in Hampton, as are the children of 
their son Zechariah, and the presumption is that during some of those 
years, the home was here. Mrs. Brackett became the wife of John 
Taylor (2), and died in 1719. Children of Anthony and Susanna

II. Charles Branscomb is the only other man of the name men- 
tioned on the Hampton Records and was probably a relative of Capt. 
William (1), coming to Hampton at the same time. He married Dec. 
12, 1779, Elizabeth Turner.

BROWN. 

I. John Brown, born in England in 1588 or '89, emigrated in 
1635, and is said to have settled in Hampton as early as 1639. A 
tract of four acres, for a house-lot, lying near a branch of the river, 
afterward hearing his own name, was granted to him, though he seems 
not to have settled there. His residence was on a ten- acre lot bought 
of John Sanders, on which Zaccheus Brown, a lineal descendant of 
the seventh generation, now resides. He afterward, by purchase, 
made large additions to this lot, and obtained various other tracts in 
different parts of the town. His wife's name was Sarah. He died 
Feb. 28, 1687. Their children :

X. Paine Wing ate Chase. In the year 1826 the Academy sus- 
tained a heavy loss in the death of its preceptor, Paine Wingate 
Chase. As an instructor of youth, Mr. Chase was excelled by few. 
To a commanding and manly deportment he added a sound and 
vigorous mind. Having himself a thorough knowledge of the studies 
which he was called to teach, and devoting a large share of his atten- 
tion to the duties of his station, he was enabled to communicate 
instruction to others with clearness and facility. 

He was born at Litchfield, N. H., and educated at Yale College, 
where he graduated in 1821. He took charge of Hampton Academy 
in February, 1825, and continued nearty two years. At a time when 
the friends of the institution were anticipating' much from his labors 
and fidelity, death unexpectedly put an end to his career. After having

of land granted to him in June, 1640, and had one share in the com- 
mons in 164G. In the latter part of his life he was poor and re- 
ceived help from the town. He died May 26, 1662, aged eighty-eight 
years, according to the statement of his wife, Eunice Cole, the re- 
puted witch. She died Oct., 1680. (See pp. 53, 67, 79.)

Abraham and Jacob, and his cousin, Isaac Foss. 
Perhaps, therefore, Jacob. 

III. Isaac Cole, carpenter, millwright, probably brother of Abra- 
ham (2), was of Exeter, Nov. 22, 1661, when he sold to Abraham 
Perkins, S r , for £20 10s. land in Hampton (ab. 4 a.) bounded E. by

lor ; S. by pasture land of Hezron Leavitt — being formerly land of 
John Cass, who sold it to Christopher Palmer & s d Palmer sold it to 
Isaac Cole. (Norf. Rec. 248.) 

Isaac Cole [Jan. 15, 1666] sells to Hezron Leavitt "my now dw. 
house & y e barne & leantoos w th all the housing being & standing 
upon y e land w ch I bought of Ch r Palmer lately in possession of J no

ton, in the persons of John and Thomas Cotton, the latter of whom 
was the father of Morris and grandfather of Jonathan, whose descend- 
ants still live at Little River. 

John and Nathaniel Cotton, sons of Nathaniel, of Stratham, were 
brought up, the former, in the family of Ephraim Marston (33), the 
latter, in that of Thomas Ward (6). After they were married, they

COXE. 

I. ' Moses Coxe was at Hampton as early as the spring of 1640, 
when he was appointed the first herdsman for the town. In 1662 he 
was a selectman. His house stood a few rods from the "mill road," 
on the westerly side. His wife, Alice, was lost at sea, Oct. 20, 1657, 
with their son, John, and six others, including William Swayne (2) 
(p. 57,) whose widow, Prudence, daughter of William Marston (1), 
Mr. Coxe married June 16, 1658. He died May 28, 1687, aged ninety-

bination, soon after the settlement of that town. Not long after, he 
removed to Hampton and settled on the south side of Taylor's river 
(now Hampton Falls) near the site of the Weare monument. His 
wife's name was Hester. She died May 16, 1677. He died Mar. 5, 
1682. In the record of his death, he is styled "good old John Cram, 
one just in his generation." In his will, two sons, Benjamin and 
Thomas, are mentioned, and two daughters, Mary and Lydia. Chil-

CROSSE. 

I. John Crosse, one of the grantees of the town, was of Ipswich 
in 1635, and is supposed to have come here with the first settlers, in 
the fall of 1638. Certain it is, that he was here in 1639, in which 
year he was made freeman. His house-lot was the next easterly of 
Roger Shaw's, and after living on it a few years, he sold it, to- 
gether with other lands, to Thomas Ward, and probably returned to 
Ipswich, where he is said to have died in 1652. Mr. Crosse appears 
to have been a man of considerable ability, and, as such, was not un- 
noticed by the people. He represented the town in the General Court 
at both sessions in 1640, and at the spring session in 1641. In May 
of the latter year, he was appointed with two others, by the General 
Court, to appraise the live-stock in the town, for taxation ; and, in 
June following, one of the commissioners for small causes, which 
office he held some more than two years. Dec. 14, 1639, he had 250 
acres granted to him by the town for a farm, and in the assignment 
of rights in the commons, he received two shares, besides his farm-lots. 
He was one of a very few men among the early inhabitants, who were 
styled Mr., which was then an honorary title. His wife's name was 
Ann. Their daughter Ann was baptized in Newbury, Oct. 9, 1638.

ter of Josiah Roby (11) ; lived, first, in the Souther home, near the site 
of George N. Batchelder's baru ; afterwards, on the Roby homestead,

DALTON. 

I. Rev. Timothy Dalton, associate pastor, or as he was styled, 
teacher of the church in Hampton, soon after its settlement, died in 
1661, his widow, Ruth, in 1666, and their only child, Timoth} - , previ- 
ous to 1652, as stated at length in the Ecclesiastical Department of 
this work. 

October 10, 1657, Mr. Dalton conveyed his farm, of three hundred 
acres, lying on the south side of Taylor's river, by separate deeds of 
gift, to three of his kinsmen, giving one hundred acres to each. The 
grantees were Jasper Blake (1), Nathaniel Batchelder. (3), and Eman- 
uel Hilliard (1). It seems probable that Mr. Blake was his brother- 
in-law. The relationship of Batchelder and Hilliard is not so clear, 
but it is supposed that their wives were nieces of Mrs. Dalton. In 
an indenture in 1664, she terms Nathaniel Batchelder "my constituted 
heir ;" and makes provision for Elizabeth (Hilliard) Merry and her

three (Hilliard) children. She also gives a small sum to Mary, wife of 
William Fi field (1), and to Walter Roper (1), who were, perhaps, 
relatives. Mrs. Dalton gave the bulk of her property to Nathaniel 
Batchelder (3). 

II. Philemon Dalton, brother of the minister, was the progenitor 
of all the Dalton families that have since lived here. He was several 
3 T ears younger than his brother, as appears from the record of his ex- 
amination, April 15, 1635, previous to embarking for New England. 
He was then forty-five years of age, and his wife, Dorothy, thirty-five ; 
so that he was born about 1590, and his wife, about 1600. They 
brought with them a son, named Samuel, then about six years old. 
hence born about 1629. He appears to have been their only child. 
Mr. Dalton was fatally injured by the fall of a tree, and died June 4, 
1662. Dorothy, his widow, was afterward married to Godfrey Dear- 
born (1). Philemon Dalton's house-lot was nearly opposite the Cen- 
ter school-house. 

III. Samuel Dalton, son of Philemon (2), married Mehetabel, 
daughter of Henry Palmer, of Haverhill, Mass. ; inherited the home- 
stead. He was a very influential man, and for thirty years or more, 
held offices of trust and transacted a great amount of business. 

"In answer to the motion of the deputy of Hampton, Mr. Samuel 
Dalton is appointed and impowered to solemnize marriage of persons 
(one of whom is resident in that tovvne), being published according 
to lawe, and to administer oathes to witnesses as cases may require, 
& also commissionated to be an associate in the County Courts as the 
last yeare." (Mass. Rec. ; May 15, 1672.)

Joseph Frederic Dearborn. 

The eldest son of Jonathan and Sarah Dearborn, growing up in 
the quiet of his Hampton home, early gave promise of those talents 
which developed under the instruction of Principals Harris and Shep- 
ard at the Academy, especially in the lines of classical and mathemat- 
ical study. At the age of eighteen, he entered Dartmouth College, and 
at once took high rank. Applying himself intensely to the studies he 
loved, and faithfully to the whole college curriculum, steadfast and 
upright, genial and kind-hearted, he could not fail to pass the col- 
lege course with honor. He was graduated in 1839, third in his class 
of sixty-one members. 

From college, Mr. Dearborn went to Harvard Law School, and thence 
to the office of Colby and Clifford, in New Bedford, Mas<s. Having 
completed his course with these eminent lawyers, he was admitted to

the bar, and opened an office for himself in New Bedford, thus enter- 
ing upon a career of twenty-five years' practice in that city, in which 
he became widely celebrated for his clear insight, careful preparation 
and successful prosecution of cases, civil and criminal. At the same 
time, he amassed a considerable fortune by investments in whaling 
and real estate. 

His ceaseless activities at length breaking down his health, Mr. 
Dearborn retired from business and spent some months in travel. An 
incident of his European travel illustrates his delight in giving pleas- 
ure to others. From every city and point of interest visited, he gath- 
ered pebbles as souvenirs, and wrote on each label a sentence or two 
descriptive of the place. On his return, he gave a large package of 
these mementoes to a friend, and then handed her a duplicate pack- 
age, saying: "Give these to some one who will like them." 

In Germany, Mr. Dearborn first met the lad}' who became his wife, 
and with whom he made a home "singularly sweet and pleasant," in 
Med ford, Mass., removing to Melrose (Highlands after ten years. 
After his return from Europe he engaged less in active business and 
more in his own conservatory and gardens. His death from pneumo- 
nia, in 1889, was sudden and unexpected, after only a few days' ill- 
ness. He lived honorably and died peacefully. 

About the year 1860, Mr. Dearborn bought four contiguous lots in 
the new cemeteiy in Hampton, comprising 1296 square feet, in the 
most elevated part of the enclosure. After his death, the use to 
which it was to be put was revealed by a provision in his will, that 
ten thousand dollars be expended for an enduring monument upon the 
spot, in memory of Godfrey Dearborn, his first American ancestor. 
The long cherished plan was energetically carried forward by Mrs. 
Dearborn, who has since become Mrs. J. Merrill Currier, and still re- 
sides in Melrose Highlands. Mr. Currier superintended the erection 
of the monument, which was gratefully appreciated by his wife. 

The obelisk, which is of Barre, Vt., granite, was manufactured in 
that town, and shipped to Hampton in October, 1890. In the spring 
of 1891 it was placed in position upon the rock foundation prepared 
for it. The first base is ten feet square and one foot deep ; second 
base, eight feet square and one foot deep ; third base, six feet square 
and fifteen inches deep, with finely moulded edge. On this rests the 
die, which is four feet square and six feet high, its faces and the round 
pillars at the corners being highly polished. Surmounting this is the 
cap, projecting over the die about six inches. This and the plinth 
above it are at once graceful in design and finish, and sufficiently 
massive to receive the main shaft, which is three feet two inches square

• 

at the bottom, and twenty inches square near the top, from which it 
tapers to a point, and towers thirty-one feet above the plinth. The 
whole structure stands forty-six feet high. 

The inscriptions are as follows: On the west face of the second 
base is "dearborn," in heavy raised letters ; on the north face of the 
die, "Ancestor of the Dearborn family in America, who emigrated 
from Exeter, England, to Exeter, N. H., in 1639, settled in Hampton 
in 1650, and died in 1686 ;" on the west face of the die, "Erected 1890, 
by Joseph Frederic Dearborn, son of Jonathan and Sarah Towle 
Dearborn, in memory of Godfrey Dearborn;" on the south face, '-Jo- 
seph Frederic Dearborn, born May 14th, 1817 ; died March 15th, 1889." 
On the four sides of the lower margin of the cap are the mottoes : 
"First the useful, then the ornamental ;" "Trust few, deceive none ;" 
"Be resolute and persevere;" "Do right and fear not." On the four 
sidesof the plinth are the words "Temperance," "Econom} /'"Truth," 
"Industry." 

This solid memorial of the sturdy forefather of a numerous poster- 
ity, scattered throughout the United States, was unveiled with appro- 
priate ceremonies, on the 20th of June, 1891. After dinner at the 
hotel, given to a large number of invited guests, by Mr. and Mrs. J. 
M. Currier, the ceremonies at the monument were placed in the hands 
of Mr. G. H. Dearborn, of Melrose. Very appropriately, the act of 
unveiling was performed by Mrs. Currier, in that supreme moment 
when she saw the purpose of years accomplished, in the stately mon- 
ument towering high above the assembled throng and overlooking the 
village and cultivated fields, beautiful in their June freshness, that 
could have had no being but for the brave daring and self denying 
toil of those early years commemorated. 

The president, Mr. G. H. Dearborn, sketched the lives of Godfrey 
Dearborn, the ancestor, and Joseph F. Dearborn, the donor of the 
monument. Addresses were made also by Dr. J. W. Dearborn, of 
Parsonsfleld, Me., Hon. Sylvester Dana, of Concord, Hon. N. C. Berry 
of Boston and Charles M. Lamprey, Esq., of Hampton. And the 
elements of prayer and song carried all hearts heaven-ward, whither 
the tall shaft silently points. 

XXXIV. John Dearborn, Colonel, son of Simon (26), married

DOW. 



The great-grandfather of Henry Dow, the first of the name in Hamp- 
ton, was John Dow, who died at Tylner, Norfolk county, England, in 



GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL. 677 

July, 1561 (between the seventh of the month, the date of his will, and 
the twenty third, when it was presented for probate), leaving three 
children, Thomas, John and Edith, all minors, and two brothers, Wil- 
liam and Thomas. 

Thomas Dow, son of John, of Tylner, was afterward of Runham, 
in the same county. His wife's name was Margaret. He had two 
sons, Henry and Christopher, and two daughters, one of whom mar- 
ried Stephen Farrar, and the other, March. Christopher married 

and had nine children. 

Henry Dow, the elder son of Thomas, lived at Runham. His wife's 
name was Elizabeth. Their children were Thomas, Henry, Edward, 
Mary, Frances and William, who must all have been young, when the 
father died, Dec, 1G 12, or Jan., 1613. Henry, the second son, came 
to Hampton. 

I. Henry Dow, the progenitor of the Dow families of Hampton 
and vicinity, was the second son of Henry and Elizabeth Dow, of Run- 
ham, Norfolk, England, where he was born about 1608. On the elev- 
enth day of February, 1631, he married Joane, widow of Roger Nudd, 
of Ormsby, in the same county, then lately deceased, leaving an infant 
son, Thomas (1). After six years' residence in Ormsby, Mr. Dow ap- 
plied for permission to emigrate to America, and having been exam- 
ined, was granted a license, Apr. 11, 1637, for himself and family, as 
follows : Henry Dow, husbandman, aged 29 years; Joane, his wife, 
30 years ; with four children, and one servant (Anne Manning, aged 
17 years), "who are desirous to pass into New England, to inhabit." 

Mr. Dow settled first in Watertown, Mass. Here his wife died, and 
was buried, June 20, 1640 ; and he married, second, in 1641, Margaret 
Cole, of Dedham, Mass. Here, probably, the fourth child mentioned 
in his emigration license, died. He removed to Hampton in the latter 
part of 1643 or early in 1644, having previously bought of John San- 
ders a dwelling house (where the late John J. Leavitt's store now 
stands), and several tracts of land for a farm. This homestead re- 
mained in possession of his lineal descendants till after the death of 
Olive Dow, of the sixth generation, daughter of John (22), in 1854, 
when it was sold and passed into other hands. 

This was the Henry Dow who was selectman in 1651 ; deputy from 
Hampton to the General Court of Massachusetts in 1655 and '56 ; and 
appointed, with two others, in 1658, to examine and record all land 
grants and highways. This last work was interrupted by his death, 
Apr. 21, 1659. On the twenty-third of October, 1661, his widow 
married, second, Richard Kimball, of Ipswich. Children :

II. Henry Dow, Captain, Esquire, son of Henry (1), being about 
twenty- five years of age when his father died, settled the estate, as 
executor of the will, and remained on the homestead, in charge of the 
farm, the other children being minors. Two months later, he married 
Hannah Page, who came with her parents from Ormsby, in the same 
ship with the Uow family. He continued to have some care of his 
'farm ; had some shipping interest ; was part owner of a sawmill ; and 
■kept a store, as appears from an account-book, still preserved. He 
was a land-surveyor ; selectman ; town clerk ; was deputy to the Gen- 
eral Assembly, clerk of the House, speaker, pro tern. He was mar- 
shal of Norfolk county, from Abraham Drake's resignation, in 1673, 
till the close of the Massachusetts government in New Hampshire; 
was deputy marshal, under royal government; and in 1680 appointed 
marshal for a limited time. 

On the eighth of October, 1686, Mr. Dow was "admitted and sworn 
as an attorney and paid his fee." 

He was ensign of the Hampton company of militia, in 1689 ; and 
in 1692, captain, his commission being signed by Sir William Phipps, 
then governor of Massachusetts, with which the New Hampshire towns 
were temporarily connected. From this time, he was generally styled 
Capt. Henry Dow. 

During the administrations of Andros and Dudley, Captain Dow 
was one of the justices of the court for New Hampshire. In 1695 
,he was justice of the Inferior Court of Common Pleas, and was re- 
appointed to the same office in April, 1697. He was senior justice 
in 1699, and held the office till his death in 1707. From 1702 till his 
• death, he was a mandamus councillor. In all his life, his character 
was marked by strict integrity and piety. 

Captain Dow kept a diary, which is still preserved, containing, 
among other matter, a brief calendar of daily events, chiefly personal, 
from March, 1672, to May, 1696. It is significant, however, that two

leaves, covering the time from July, 1683, to January, 1684, are torn 
out. These may have contained" notes of political actions, possibly 
of Mr. Weave's mission to England at this time, in which Captain 
Dow took an active part, which lie thought prudent to destroy. The 
whole period recorded in Chap. V is included in the time of this diary, 
a specimen folio of which is here reproduced. 1 

From the little book itself the character and occupations of the 
man appear. Now he is about his farm work or launching a vessel 
or sawing at cedar swamp mill or laboring at the public works ; now 
he is collecting a province rate ; again we find him with the Assembly 
at Great Island or in consultation with Mr. Vaughan, Mr. Cutt, 
Captain Sherburne ; and now speeding to Haverhill, Newbury, Ips- 
wich, Boston, on some unknown errand. Once more, he is exercis- 
ing his company in military tactics; and anon there comes an Indian 
alarm, and we find him at the garrison or with the soldiers outside 
his own town. 

Henry Dow married, first, June 17, 1659, Hannah, daughter of Rob- 
ert Page (1), "one just in her generation ;" 2 second, Nov. 10, 1704,

1 The diary is written largely in a unique cipher, the entire key to which lias never been 
discovered, though a few characters have long b^en known, and since the beginning of 1892 
the whole alphabet has been worked out. Still, there are many arbitrary signs in the com- 
pact pages of the book, which have thus far baffled study, and the question whether or 
not this may throw light upon any secret actions of town or province in those stormy 
times is yet unsolved. [See pp. 10(56, 10(17.]

FOGG. 

Samuel Fogg came to Hampton within a few years after its settle- 
ment and received grants of several tracts of land. He bought the 
homestead of Capt. Christopher Hussey (the Anthony Emery place), 
Captain Hussey having removed to his farm on the Falls side of the 
town. In the second review of old grants, made in 1658 (pp. 58, 
59), and recorded on the town book, were found grants to '■Samuel 
Fogge of Hampton," in part as follows: 

"1. Impri* : Eight Acres & Ilalfe of upland bought of Mr. Hussey, 
being the one half of His grant in the East field lying between the 
medow of the s d Samuel Fogg towards the East and the land of "Wil- 



710 HISTORY OF HAMPTON. 

liam Moulton sometimes Mr. Husses towards the West, abutting upon 
the High Waye towards the East, & the land of Will. Sanborn towards 
the West, bee it more or less as it is layd outt. 

3. Itt. A quarter of an acre of land in the Meeting house green 
the wh was granted to John Cross sometimes of Hampton, & by the 
s d John Crosse sould unto Roger Shaw and by the sd Roger Shaw 
given to Sam 11 Fogge and so appointed by the town to ly adjoining 
to that peece of land whereupon his House standeth wch was formerly 
Mr. Husseys : being bounded with the sayd peece of land towards 
the South & otherwise soe bounded with the Meetinghouse Green, 
more or less as it is layd outt." 

In the drawing for lots at the New Plantation, six years after the 
first survey in 1663 (pp. 64, 65), Samuel Fogg drew lot number 
sixty — one hundred acres. He must, therefore, have owned two shares 
or more of the commons at that time. The farm now owned by Mr. 
John II. Fogg was, without much doubt, included in his possessions, 
though no homes were then built so far away from the chief settle- 
ment. This farm has never been conveyed by deed, but has passed 
down from generation to generation, by virtue of the original grant. 

I. Samuel Fogg, married, first, Dec. 12, 1652, Ann, daughter of 
Roger Shaw (1) ; second, Dec. 28, 1665, Mary, daughter of Robert

1641. His housedot of ten acres in Hampton, granted June, 1640, 
was situated on the road from the Meeting-house Green to the Land- 
ing. Other grants and purchases make a total of forty-nine acres, 
recorded as owned by him, together with three shares in the commons, 
granted in 1645. He was a selectman in 1644 and eight subsequent 
years; was representative in 1667. He died May 26, 1693. His wife, 
"ould goodwife Fuller," died Dec. 14, 1699, aged "above 80." They 
probably had no children. 

Goodman Fuller's will, dated Mar. 18, 1691, mentions his "cousin, 
Josiah Moulton, son of Henry Moulton, of Hampton, and Elizabeth, 
wife of said Josiah, the}' being as son and daughter to me and my 
wife." Other legatees were: Elizabeth, now wife of Daniel Dow ; 
Mary Foy, y* was y e Daughter of Sam 1 Fo\', of Hampton — deed. ; 
Martha Marston, now wife of John Marston, Sen 1 , ofAndover; 
church in Hampton, my Pewter Flagon. Josiah Moulton, executor. 

II. Giles Fuller was one of the "young men who received house- 
lots" at the settlement of the town. His relationship to the other 
Fullers of Hampton is not known. His house-lot was the present 
homestead of Ebenezer W. Lane, and extended northerly to the 
swamp, still called, probably after him, Giles' swamp. Later, he 
owned another lot, on the Exeter road, between lots of William 
Godfrey and Abraham Drake. He "was probably married about 1650, 



GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL. 719 

for then a seat was assigned to him in the meeting-house, "for a wife." 
He died "suddenly, in his own house," Apr. 6, 1676. 

The following registry of emigration is found : "Susanna Thurton 
(alias Fuller) daughter of Rodger Fuller, late of Topcraft in y e Co : 
of Nor. & Sister of Giles Fuller, late of Hampton in N. E., dec d (no 
other son or dau.) That Tho. Th. of the parish of S f . Buttolphs, 
Bishopgate, Tobacconist — now to go to New England in ship Mary 
& Sarah (John Foye Mr.) son of Tho: Th. of Croydon & Susanna 
his wife. London, Apr. 5, 1677." 

In a list of church members in full communion, Sept., 1671, is 
Frances Fuller. As the name has not the prefix "Goody," she 
was probably unmarried and may have been a daughter of Giles 
Fuller. 

III. John Fuller. A plausible supposition is that he was a son 
of Giles (2) and lived on the latter's lot, next a lot owned by William 
Godfrey, and perhaps occupied by Godfrey's son, John. This would 
make John Godfrey and John Fuller near neighbors; and Fuller's 
wife, Rachel, would naturally "come in at the back djor," as stated 
in the witchcraft deposition (p. 85). John Fuller married Mar. 19, 
1677, Rachel Brabrick, probably daughter of John (1). He is sup- 
posed to have died in 1719. Children : 

John, b. Jan. 12, 1678; d. Jan. 19, 1715. 

Benoni, prob. twin to John, d. Feb. 25, 1701, "se. 83." He lived near 
Joseph L. Marston's, in No. H. ,

29, 1680, widow Susanna Buswell, daughter of Isaac Perkins (2) ; 
had a daughter Abigail, born in Ipswich, Mar. 10, 1690. 

V. James Fuller, son of John (3), married Mary . He 

was probably the James Fuller who lived in that part of the town 
annexed to Rye (p. 193). Children: 

James, b. Dec. 2, 1704. John, b. Mar. 4, 1711. 
Mary, b. Aug. 17, 1713.

GODFREY. 
I. When William Godfrey, the first of the name in Hampton, 
came to New England is unknown. He lived awhile in Dedham, Mass., 
and several years in Watertown ; was made freeman in 1640. In 
May, 1648, he bought of Samuel Getchell (then of Salisbury), five 
acres for a house-lot, between the lots of Thomas Leavitt and Giles 
Fuller (on the Exeter road), also other land. There were two deeds 
recorded, of the same date, conveying the same property; in one of 
which, Godfrey was said to be of Watertown, and in the other, of 
Hampton. On the 18th of May, 1649, being then of Watertown, he 
bought of William Payne, of Ipswich, for £55, forty-four acres of land 
in Hampton, together with one share of the Great Ox-Common, and 
two shares of all other commons. On one lot of fifteen acres, there 
was a dwelling house, to which he appears to have removed his family 
soon afterward. His house was on the west side of the "country 
road," a little distance south of the residence of Christopher G. 
Toppan. In 1654 he was a selectman, but was not often employed

GREEN. 

I. Hknry Green, Councillor, Judge, born as early as 1620, was 
of Hampton within a few years after the first settlement of the town ; 
for in May, 1644, certain lands were granted to him in exchange for 
other lands, then in his possession. He bought the house-lot first 
granted to Arthur Clarke (on the Perry estate), and perhaps lived 
there for a time, but in 1653 he was living on the south side of 
Taylor's river. He was a millwright by trade and a mill owner 
(Chapter xxxi) ; but he was also a prominent man in the town and 
province. He was twice chosen a commissioner to settle the Salis- 
bury line; was selectman, two years; assistant of the Inferior Court ; 
a justice of the Court of Sessions; councillor from 1685 to 1689, and 
again from 1692 to 1698 ; and Chief Justice of the Court of Common 
Pleas, 1697-8. At the council board and on the bench his influence 
was very great, while his sterling character' won the respect of the 
people, so that important trusts were consigned to his hands. Be- 
ing a justice during the Mason controversy, however, he then shared 
the unpopularity of the courts. 

Judge Green was twice married. His first wife, Mary, the mother 

of his children, died April 26, 1690; and he married, second, Mar. 

10, 1691, widow Mary Page, daughter of Capt. Christopher Hussey 

(2). His death is thus chronicled on the town records of Hampton :

two children were born. About 1831 he removed to Canterbury. In

HOBBS. 
Maurice (or Morris) Hobbs, according to tradition, left his native 
country under the following singular circumstances. He had been 
paying his addresses to a young lady, who, from some cause not men- 
tioned, turned him off ; and thereupon, he determined to emigrate to 
America. When the lady knew of it, she relented, and, knowing he 
would pass her residence as he proceeded to embark, placed herself in 
his view, hoping to bring about a reconciliation. To her grief, she 
found him inexorable ; and although she accosted him with the affec- 
tionate enquiry, "Whither goest thou, Maurice?" yet he deigned not

HOWARD.— HAYWARD. 

I. William Howard, Lieutenant, born about 1609, was admitted 
freeman, 1640 ; 1642, appointed a trial justice for small causes ; rep- 
resentative 1641 to 1645; received five shares of the commons, 
1646. 

In March, 1643, "part of the Brethren and most of the inhabitants 
of Hampton" sent a petition to the General Court at Boston, com- 
plaining "that he was established for a lief tenant over us without 
our knowledge or desires & hath so continued about the space of 3 
years," and asking his removal for specified "defects." The court 
did not find the charges substantiated, but allowed the petitioners 
another training officer temporarily, in the hope that "after a while 
their spirits may close again." 

Lieutenant Howard was the second town clerk, chosen in 1643, 
and continued in office four years, till he moved away from town. 
There is no record of his family. His name is written also Hay ward,

HUNTON, now written HUNTOON. 

D. T. V. Huntoon, of New York, author of The Huntoon Genealogy, 
supposes that William Hunton, the first of the name in this country, 
■was a brother of Philip Hunton, a distinguished non-conformist minis- 
ter and author, of London, born in Andover, County Hampshire, 1598 ; 
graduated at Oxford, 1626 ; died 1682. 

William Hunton received a grant of land in Hampton as follows : 
"The 24: 2 mo. 1643 [Apr. 24, 1643] Granted to Will : Hunton 2 
akers & - 1 of upland adjoyning to Jefery Myngyes towords the north- 
west & Tho : Levitts towords the south east ; one end abutteing upon 
the wigwas [wigwam] Lotts : & the other upon the coihon towards 
the north-east — more or less as it layd out. Voted." This is all 
that is found on the records, implying that AVilliam Hunton was in 
Hampton. A record of the lots of land owned by the people here 
was made in 1644, when the foregoing lot had been alienated, as ap- 
pears in describing the lots of Samuel Getchell. [See Getchell.] 
Nothing is known with certainty of William Hunton's family, but it 
is supposed that Philip, the ancestor of the Huntoons of New England, 
was his son. 



758 HISTORY OF HAMPTON. 

Pliilip Hunton married Betsey Hall, of Exeter, and lived for a time 
in that town, where, in 1697, there was granted to "phillip hnntune 
thirty acres of land joining to a piece of swamp, had formerly." 
Another grant was made in 1699. About 1703, he removed to Kings- 
ton, his wife having probably died in Exeter. He married, second, 

Hannah . In 1707, he, with seven other men and their families, 

deserted the town, through fear of Indians ; but they were ordered back 
(p. 235). The same day that Col. Winthrop Hilton was killed, July 
22, 1710, as Philip Hunton and his son Samuel were at work in a field, 
they were surprised by Indians, who mortally wounded the son and 
took the father, and one Jacob Gilman, captive, and sold them to the 
French, in Canada. They purchased their freedom, by building a 
saw-mill, said to have been the first erected in Canada, and returned 
home after two }'ears.

Pliilip (2), prob. b. in England. 

'II. Philip Hunton, son of "William (I), married, first, Betsey

HUSSEY. 
I. John Hussey, of Dorking or Darking, in the county of Surrey, 
England, married Dec. 5, 1593, Mary Wood. They seem to have 
been of good standing in society. He died in England. Children : 

John, d. young. 

Christopher, bp. in Dorking, Feb. 18, 1599. 

One daughter, perhaps more. 

The above record, though probably correct, we are unable now to 
corroborate, by turning to the authority. 

Among the grantees of Hampton were "Christo : Hussey" and 



GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL. 759 

"Mary Hussey, vidua" between whom no relationship is shown by 
the records. Their homes were on opposite sides of the Meeting- 
house Green. It has been stated and it is generally believed that 
they were mother and son. This is probable enough, though proof 
seems to be lacking. 

In the apportionment of house-lots in 1640, Widow Mary Hussey 
received five acres, bounded north by other five acres of Mary Hus- 
sey, east by the house-lot of William Marston, south by the Meeting- 
house Green and west by the house-lot of Philemon Dalton. This 
was very nearly where the town-house now stands. 

"Widow Mary Hussey, 5 : 2 mo ; 1648, sells to John Woodin three 
lots of laud (fifteen acres), of which ten acres between Philemon Dal- 
ton and William Marston, to hold jointly with her during her natural 
life, and after her death to belong wholly to him and his heirs and as- 
signs forever." Woodin sold this property to Thomas Coleman in 
1657, and the same year the latter sold to Joseph Merry. Merry's 
attorneys sold to Benjamin Church ; Church sold to Francis Jenness, 
in 1672 ; and in 1674 Jenness sold to John Smith, the tailor. 

Early in 1650 seats were assigned in the meeting-house to "ould 
mistris husse" and "her dafter husse." No daughter is named on the 
records. Widow Mary Hu-ssey died "16 : 4 mo [June 16] : 1660." 

Assuming that Mary Hussey was the widow of John Hussey, of 
Dorking, several queries arise. Is there any significance in the simi- 
larity of the nnmes, Wood and Woodin? Were they originally one, 
and was John Woodin a relative? Was Theodate Hussey, wife or 
daughter of Christopher (whichever of them was the survivor in 
1650) , or his elder daughter, Mary, the "dafter husse," to whom a seat 
was assigned in the meeting-house? When Thomas Coleman bought 
the place, had Widow Hussey gone over to the "Falls side," to spend 
her last years with her son Christopher? 

IT. Christopher Hussey, Deacon, Captain, probably son of John 
(1), was born in Dorking, England, in 1595 or 1596. Of his early 
education and employments we know nothing; nor can we tell when 
his father died. With man}' of his countrymen, he was driven by re- 
ligious persecution to Holland, perhaps among the parishioners of 
Rev. Stephen Bachiler (1). It is said that when Christopher Hussey 
wished to marry that clergyman's daughter, Theodate, he, having de- 
termined to emigrate to America, would consent to the union only on 
condition that the .young couple would emigrate also. The marriage 
took place in England, but whether before or after the sojourn in Hol- 
land is not known. 



760 HISTORY OF HAMPTON. 

Mr. Hussey, with his wife (and widowed mother?) arrived at 
Charlestown, Mass., it is supposed on the 23rd of July, 1630, in the 
"William and Francis," which sailed from Southampton sometime 
in May. Two years later they welcomed to their home in Saugus 
(Lynn), Mrs. Hussey's father and some others of the family, with other 
friends and acquaintances from their native land. Rev. Mr. Bachiler, 
as we have seen, immediately established his church in Lynn. It is 
affirmed that on his first Sabbath there, he baptized four children ; 
that, being asked to baptize Thomas Newhall first, as he was the first 
white child born in Lynn, he refused, saying he would baptize his own 
child first — his grandson, Stephen Hussey, the second white child 
born in Lynn, then nearly two years old. 

After the migratory movements noted in our Ecclesiastical History, 
we find Christopher Hussey and Widow Mary Hussey in Mr. Bach- 
iler's company at Hampton, as grantees of the town. Mr. Hus- 
sey was the first deacon of the church already established, and a 
prominent and influential man. His first home was on the site of Mr. 
Anthony Emery's, of more recent date, opposite that of his son Isaac 
Emeiy, of to-day ; but his farm (one of the "five farms") was on the 
Falls side of the town ; and thither he removed after a few years. 
"Capt. Hussey, 6 : 2mo [April 6]: 1650, sells to Stephen Sanborn 
and Samuel Fogg, their heirs, &c — all his houses and house-lots &c — 
in Hampton." 

Deacon Hussey was a captain in the militia and a magistrate; 
town-clerk, selectman and representative; and when New Hampshire 
was made a royal province, he was one of the councillors named in 
the royal commission. 

His wife, Theodate (probably) died Oct. 20, 1649 (though it is 
possible thatit was his daughter Theodate, whose death at that date is 
recorded). He married, second, Dec. 9, 1658, Ann, widow of Jeffery 
Mingay (1), who died June 24, 1680. A few more years pnssed, and 
Captain Hussey, having rounded out ninety years in an honorable and 
distinguished career, died Mar. 6, 1686 ; "buried 8 March," as stated on 
the Town Records. Captain Henry Dow wrote in cipher in his diary 
for Monday, Mar. 8, that he was " at Captain Hussey's burial." It 
is therefore certain that he died in Hampton, and was not, as stated 
by Savage, cast away off the coast of Florida. Children :

JENNESS. , 

This name is often written Jennings on the early records, suggest- 
ing that Jenness and Jennings, now considered distinct names, may 
have been originally one. It is not known when Francis Jenness, the 
ancestor of the Hampton families, came nor whence he emigrated. 
There was a Richard Jennings, born in Ipswich, England, who came 
to this country in 1636 and returned in 1639. Possibly Francis was 
from the same place — possibly his son — though this is merely conjec- 
ture. Francis Jenness, born about 1634, is styled '^seaman" and 
''baker." His name first appears on the Hampton records in 1670, 
when he married Hannah Swaine. It seems probable that he lived at 
the settlement for a time and moved up to what is now Rye in 1674, 
and that his land there was laid out to him the next year (p. 182). 
The following transactions are entered in detail on the old Norfolk 
County Records : 

Feb. 6, 1672, Francis Jenness, of Hampton, bought of Benjamin 
Church, of Duxbury, the Widow Mary Hussey place, which on the 27th 
of the same month he reconveyed to Church, but probably only mort-

gaged it, since two years later it was still in his hands, and sold by 
him, as follows : "ffrancis Jenins of Hampton, Oct. 1, 1674, for £72, 
sells to John Smith (Tailor) his dwelling-house and house lot of 5 
acres, & 5 acres more adjoining, bounded W. by land of Samuel Dal- 
ton ; E. by land of W m Marston ; on the South abutting upon a com- 
mon way or land commonly called y e Ring, & on the North by land 
of W m Marston & Tho : Page." This may have been about the time 
he settled on the land, already his, in the northeast part of the town, 
which has ever since been held in the Jenness name. A few days la- 
ter he conveyed a part of this Rye land to his two little children, Thomas 
and Hannah, as follows : 

Francis Jenness, of Hampton, from love and affection, conveys to 
"my two children, Thomas and Hannah Jenness, 60 acres in the North 
Division lying neare to y e sea aboue y e long stony beach towards Pas- 
cataqua, being 3 shares lying together," two of them bought of Isaac 
Godfrey and one belonging to his house- lot, of which, Thomas to have 
20 acres besides what had been made sure to him by a former deed ; 
and Hannah to have 40 acres after the death of the grantor's wife, 
Hannah Jenness. He makes his " father-in-law [his wife's step-fa- 
ther], Moses Cox, feefee in trust, " etc , Oct. 10, 1674. 

The "former deed" referred to is as follows : "Moses Cox, of Hump- 
ton, Dec. 30, 1672, for a valuable sum of money and other considera- 
tions, sells to Francis Jenness, of Hampton, and his son, Thomas Jen- 
ness, all his right, title and interest in a tract of land to be hereafter 
laid out (of about 50 acres) , it being the right of two shares in the 
cow common in a late division of land called y e North Division, abut- 
ting upon Portsm bounds towards the north & extending southward 
towards Hampton Meet g house — the 63 lot in number, bounded on 
the East by a grant to Edward Gove and on the West by a grant to 
Abraham Perkins." 

It is said that when Francis Jenness went up to Rye, he cleared a 
piece of land by cutting down the forest and burning it over ; then 
sowed wheat ;.putup a gristmill and a bake-house ; reaped and ground 
his grain ; made bread ; took it in a boat to Boston and sold it. This 
land is now owned by J. Disco and Sheridan Jenness ; and there is 
still a gristmill on the old site. (See Chap, xxxi — Rye Mills.) 

I. Fkancis Jenness, born about 1634, settled in Hampton within 
the present limits of Rye. His sons, John and Richard, and perhaps 
Hezekiah, lived in the same part of the town. He married, first, Feb. 
In, 1670, Hannah, daughter of William Swaine (2) ; second, Feb. 4, 
1701, widow Salome White, of Portsmouth. He died Aug. 27, 1716.

770 HISTORY OF HAMPTON. 



JOHNSON. 

I. Edmund Johnson and his wife, Mary, were in Hampton in 
1639. In June of the following year, he received from the town a 
house-lot and some other tracts of land ; and in 1646 three shares in 
the cow common. His house-lot included the homestead of the late 
John Johnson, and extended to the "Academy road," taking in 
the southern part of John A. Nudd's field, the house-lot of Nathaniel 
Johnson and the cemetery near it. Besides this was a small grant 
on the other side of the road — "abought thirtye rod which his house 
stand of [on] in the meeting house green lnyeingneere upon a square, 
Jo3 r ning up to a common way towords the east — otherwise the green 
goeth round abought it." [Laid out in September.] ' - Bro : Crosse 
w th 5 other brethren are appointed to sett out unto Edm : Johnson a 
little ground about his house, not prejudicing the beasts going to 
drinke in the Runne." 

Edmund Johnson's home lot was given by him to his two sons, 
Peter and James, the latter having the eastern part, Avhich came 
down to the late John Johnson by heirship and is now George A. 
Johnson's (of another family), by purchase. James Johnson's house 
stood a few rods south of the one now on the lot. Edmund Johnson 
died Mar. 10, 1651, and his widow married, second, Thomas Coleman 
(1). Children: 

Peter (2), bp. at Winnacunnet early in 1639. If lie was b. here, he was 
prob. the first white child b. in the town, though that distinction is 
claimed for Abraham Perkins (6). He m. Ruth Moulton; was drowned,, 
with James Philbrick, Nov. 16, 1674.

Ruth, daughter of John Moulton (2). Children :

Peter (posthumous) (5), b. Nov. 25, 1674; m. Esther Hobbs. 

III. James Johnson, mill-wright, son of Edmund (1), married 
Mar. 26, 1675, Sarah Daniels; lived in Hampton, on the easterly end 
of his father's homestead, as stated above ; but he spent several years 
in Maine. C. T. Libbey, Esq., of Portland, says : He probably learned 
his trade of Henry Say ward, in Hampton, and removed with him to 
York, as one of his workmen. In 1669, he is described as of York, in 



GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL. 771 

a grant of land to "Henry Sayward, James Johnson and Thomas 
Patty." A document signed by him Dec. 23, 1670, gives his resi- 
dence again as Hampton. May 28, 1683, James Johnson, of Hamp- 
ton, bought ten acres of land at Spruce Creek; and Apr. 5, 1685, 
James Johnson, of Hampton, mill-wright, bought of John Shapleigh, 
of Kittery, one-fourth of a mill on Spruce Creek. Oct. 26, 1699, Enoch 
Hutchins, of Kittery, deeded property to ''Mr. James Johnson, of the 
same place, millwright." June 25, 1700, other parties deeded to the 
same. His death is entered on the town records of Hampton and he 
probably died here. He left no will, but his heirs made a division deed 
of the property, according to his known wishes. His son Samuel re- 
ceived all his Kittery lands; his homestead, lands in Hampton and 
personal property went to the other children. His widow died Jan., 
1718. Children :

LAMPREY. 

Henry Lampret, born in England about 1616, came to America, 
with his wife, Julien, orGillyen, as it is written in the Town Records; 
lived several years in Boston, and about 1660 removed to Hampton. 
He is said to have been a cooper, by trade. He died Aug. 7, 1700, 
aged eighty-four years, according to a deposition in 1666, in which he 
calls himself fifty years old. His wife died May 10, 1670. 

A pretty story (of the ti'nth of which there is little doubt) has been 
handed down from generation to generation, that this little wife 
received for her marriage dowry a scale, containing her weight (one 
hundred twelve pounds) in gold. The chest which held the treas- 
ure is still preserved, being now owned by the children of the late 
Morris Lamprey, Esq., of St. Paul, Minn. 

I. Henry Lamprey and his wife, Gillyen, had children : 

Henry, b. ab. 1641; m. July 24, 1686, Elizabeth Mitchell; lived in Stratham ; 
was a signer of a petition from the inhabitants to the Gov. and Council 
in 1709, asking to be incorporated as a town. Perhaps this is the Henry 
who was of Exeter, in 1666. The H. Records give the birth of but one 
ch. : Mary, b. Aug., 1692. 

Daniel. There is a tradition that he never married, but remained on the 
homestead and had for a housekeeper "a kinswoman," to whom he gave 
the easterly half of his house-lot, which she afterwards sold to (John?) 
Knowles. But it is found that Daniel Lamprey was allowed from the treas- 
ury of the province, in 1711, "his debenter, for money paid Roger Swaine, 
for entertaining his son, being sick in the [military] service, fifteen shil- 
lings," and from an account, in 1710, it appears that the name of the son 
was Benjamin. (Prov. Pap., in : 422, 4C9.)

Mary, b. in Boston, Mar. 8, 1654; d. in infancy.

; who died Sept. 17, 1735, aged sixty-five years. They lived

house with his brother, Reuben ; was well known as a miser ; sometimes 
went gunning, and near the close of his life, scattered his stock of pow- 
der and shot among the manure in the barn-yard, as a farmer sows 
grain in his field — lest it fall into the hands of his heirs. For the same 
reason he buried some of his money, much of which was in silver dol- 
lars. Some money, thus concealed, was found after his death.

MRS. RUTH (LAMPREY) CADLE. 

Though the family of Samuel Lamprey went to Orford before the 



GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL. 789 

birth of the youngest child, Ruth, yet Hampton cannot afford to re- 
linquish her claim on one whose life was so fruitful in grand results. 

While she was a member of Union Academy, in Canaan, Governor 
Lowe, of Iowa, wrote Governor Slade, of New Hampshire, who was 
president of "The Society for the Promotion of Education at the 
West," to send a teacher to Bloomington (now Muscatine), Iowa. 
Furnished with certificates, one of which, signed by Edmund Toppan, 
Esquire, testified to her success as a teacher in Hampton, Ruth 
Lamprey answered the summons ; taught for two years ; fearlessly 
stood by the abolitionist and the slave; and gained strength and 
influence for the momentous future. Then she married. 

Her husband, Deacon Cadle, was like-minded with herself. When 
Ihe cholera epidemic raged through the Mississippi valley, in 1852, 
both labored incessantly, and often so nearly alone that, with their 
own hands, they nursed and laid out the victims by the hundred. But 
it was during the war that Mrs. Cadle's wonderful talents as organizer 
and executive were impressed upon the state of Iowa and its soldiery. 
She helped make the uniforms for the first two companies enlisted ; 
organized and presided over the Soldiers' Aid Society of Muscatine 
County, — a society that not only made bandages and lint and delicate 
cookery for the hospitals, but planted and raised for the Iowa soldiers 
a steamboat load of potatoes, probably ten thousand bushels ; and 
largely through her influence, did other works on as grand a scale. 
She was one of the prime movers and managers in the great Sanitary 
Fair, in Muscatine, that netted over twenty-five thousand dollars for 
the Sanitary Commission ; was one of the corporators of the Iowa 
Soldiers' Orphans' Home, since made a state institution ; and to her, 
more than to any other, was due the erection of the first soldiers' 
monument in the state.

LOCKE. 
John Locke, Captain, came, according to tradition, from Yorkshire, 



822 HISTORY OF HAMPTON. 

England, and settled first in Dover. The first notice of him on 
record, however, is in Portsmouth, where a house-lot was granted 
him in 1656. It was probably in the spring of 1666 that he settled, 
without permission of the town, on land belonging to Hampton, on 
Jocelyn's Neck, now a part of Rye. He was, about a year and a 
half afterward, admitted as an inhabitant, by vote of the town. He 
married about 1652, Elizabeth, daughter of William Berry. He was 
killed by Indians, Aug. 26, 1696, aged, as is supposed, about seventy 
years. His widow was living in Feb. 1707. 

The tragedy of Captain Locke's death occurred during King 
William's war, when men went armed, to their daily work. It is said 
that, having stood his gun against a rock, he was reaping grain, when 
several Indians crept stealthily up behind and shot him with his own 
weapon. Supposing him dead, they rushed upon him, for his scalp, 
when he revived, struck out with his sickle and cut off the nose of one 
of the Indians. Years afterward, a son of his met a noseless Indian 
in Portsmouth ; the recognition was mutual ; but whether vengeance 
followed, we are not informed. The following incomplete, and, as 
the compiler remarks, in some particulars probably erroneous record 
of his children is from The Book of the Lockks, by John G. Locke.

was stricken with the fever that caused his death. A widow survives 
him."

James M. Lovering, son of Maj. John (6), was educated at Hamp- 
ton Academy. In 1840 he went to Exeter, where he ever after re- 
sided. He engaged in trade, on Water street, the firm name being 
Lovering & Prescott. Subsequently, he was cashier of the Exeter 
Bank. In February, 1860, he was appointed Superintendent of the 
folding room, in Washington, D. C. ; and two years later, was ap- 
pointed Collector of Internal Revenue, which office he held for about 
eight years. In 1870 he took the census of Exeter, Hampton, North 
Hampton and Newcastle. ' The twelve years previous to his death, 
he was a United States appraiser in the Boston Custom-House. He 
represented Exeter in the Legislature in 1855, '56 and '57 ; was town 
clerk in 1847, '48 and '49 ; moderator in 1856 and '57. He was a 
charter member of Sagamore Lodge, No^ 9, I. 0. O. F. of Exeter. 

Mr. Lovering was a most efficient government official, being in 
that service nearly a quarter of a century, and handling millions of 
dollars for the government, as Internal Revenue Collector. 

In politics, he was a Republican, and was a leader in his party, 
shaping man}' of the nominations for public office in New Hampshire, 
and always refusing to be a candidate himself, although pressed to 
run for Congress several times. 

He always took great interest in Hampton ; and during the later 
years of his life, in company with the late General Gilman Marston, 
would annually, on the Fourth of July, visit many of the older people 
of the town, relating reminiscences of boyhood life, the incidents of 
which, he always cherished with pleasure. 

He died in Exeter, at the age of sixty-seven years, ten months.

836 HISTORY OF HAMPTON. 

t 

MARSTON. 

Among the early settlers, who received grants of land, were Robert 
and William Marston, whose relationship to each other, if any ex- 
isted, is not known. 

RoiiEKT Marston's house-lot, seven acres more or less, hounded by 
Robert Page's on the west, and a common way on the east, abutting 
upon the Meeting-house Green toward the south and the common to- 
ward the north, was the same that is now owned by Jeremiah Marston. 
In 1641 Robert received three acres of meadow "neere the Boares 
head." June 30, 1643, another house-lot of five acres was granted to 
him, which seems to have been obtained for Simon Marston, who was 
probably his son. This was the present De Lancey place, separated 
from his former lot only by the "common way." Towards the close 
of that year, Robert Marston died. In 1644 William Moulton, who 
lived at Robert Page's (next lot west of Marston's) and married his 
daughter not far from this time, obtained "ten acres of upland in the 
North playne Bought of Rob : Masten haier — SymontMasten by name," 
and other land, including both the house-lots granted to Robert Mars- 
ton. As there is nothing more on record regarding Simon, it is likely 
that he went away or died. William Moulton settled on rhe easterly 
lot (De Lancey), and afterwards sold the other to Richard Knight, 
who had a gristmill at the Landing for a number of years, but event- 
ually removed to York, Me. Oct. 5, 1653, Knight sold it to Thomas 
Marston, son of "William Sen., and thence it descended in direct line, 
through Ephraim, Jeremiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Jeremiah, to the pres- 
ent Jeremiah. 

I. William Marston, Captain, born about 15—, the ancestor of 
all the Hampton Marstons, was married and had several children be- 
fore his emigration. He came to Hampton soon after the settlement 
was commenced. Land was granted to him as early as June 30, 1640, 
and it is probable that a house-lot had been assigned to him earlier. 
He lived near the present site of the town-house (now owned by Frank 
Green). There arc reasons for believing that he had a wife living in 
1651 and that she died not many years afterward. He died June 30, 
1672, leaving a widow named Sabina, who was the executrix of his 
will. She had borne him one child, but it is evident that his other 
children were by a former marriage. His widow married, second, 
John Redman (1). Children: 

Thomas (2), b. ab. 1(515; m. Mary Eastow; d. Sept. 28, 1G90.

854 HISTORY OF HAMPTON. 



MASON. 
John Mason, the earliest known settler of the name in Hampton, 
was a deputy marshal in 1684 (p. 111). He probably left but one 
son, who seems not to have had a family here. His descendants in 
Hampton are through his eldest daughter. About thirty years later 
came Robert, from whom the Hampton Masons are descended. A 
dozen more years and Nathaniel appears, whose descendants here are in 
the female line. The relationship among these three men — and their 
origin are unknown. There was a Joseph Mason, a witness, at 
Hampton, in 1645 ; but whether or not he was a resident is not known 
and nothing further has been found concerning him.

MOULTON. 

Among the grantees and first settlers of Hampton are found the 
' names of John and Thomas Monlton, whose relationship to each other 
is not known. They had assigned to them adjoining house lots, and 
were neighbors more than fifteen years, till the latter sold his home- 
stead and other estate and removed to Maine. His house-lot was the 
one now owned and occupied by Walter J. Palmer. 

John Moulton and Anne, his wife, were from Orinsby, in the county 
of Norfolk, England. They came to New England in the spring of 
1637, having then five children, one son and four daughters. Another 
son, born afterward, was baptized at Newbuiy, Mass., and a daughter 
was born and baptized after their settlement in Hampton. His house- 
lot lay on the west side of that of Thomas, and was transmitted in his 
family down to Daniel Moulton, of the sixth generation, who sold the 
larger part of it in 1866, and the rest more than twenty years later. 

Soon after the settlement of the town, we find, also, another of the 
name living here, viz. : "William Moulton, the same, without doubt, 
that had, in 1637, come from Ormsby with the family of Robert Page, 
in the capacity of a servant, he being then twenty years old. He 
married, and lived near Mr. Page's residence, on the lot now owned 
by the DeLancey family. His descendants and those of John Moul- 
ton are numerous in this vicinity. 

I. Thomas Moulton, born in England; of Newbury, 1637; came 
to Hampton, 1638; removed to York, Me., about 1654. His wife's 
name was Martha. Children, as far as known : 

Thomas, bp. Nov. 24, 1639. Daniel, bp. Feb. 13, 1641. 

Mary, b. Jan. 25, 1651. 

Hannah, b. June 19, 1655; [m. Samuel Tilton (2)?]. 

II. John Moulton, born in England, about 1599 ; married Anne 
— ; immigrated, 1637; settled at Winnacunnet, 1638; freeman, 



May 22, 1639; was chosen the first deputy or representative of the

town to the General Court at Boston, the next September. He died 
between Jan. 23, 1649, the date of his will, and Oct. 1, 1650, when 
it was proved, his age being about fifty years. Anne, his widow, died 
Apr. 12, 1668, aged sixty-eight years. Children : 

Henry (4), b. ab. 1623; m. Sobriety Hilton; d. Sept. 8, 1701. 
Mary, b. in Eng. ; m. William Sanborn (3) ; cl. Oct. 11, 1686.

Kuth, bp. at H., Mar. 7, 1611; m. Peter Johnson (2); d. Sept. 7, 1718. 

The twins, Jane and Bridget, for many years lived in a small house 
built for them by the roadside, near the site of Mr. Joseph Johnson's 
barn. Anecdotes illustrative of some peculiarities in their tempera- 
ment and character have been handed down by tradition. There is 
also preserved (N. H. Hist. Soc. Col. Ill: 122,) a letter of Rev. Cot- 
ton Mather, to a gentleman of London, in 1716, wherein he says of 
them : 

"At Hampton, a Town about Fifty miles from this place (Boston), 
there were Twin sisters, whose names were Bridget and Jane Moul- 
ton. The perpetual Harmony and Sympathy between the sisters was 
the observation of all the neighbourhood. They were never contented 
except they were together. If the one were desirous to go abroad, 
the other would be impatient of staying at home. If the one were 
merry, the other would be airy. If the one were troubled, the other 
would be chagrin [ed], "When one was for carding, the other was 
for spinning. For their Dispositions and Satisfaction there was a 
very strange Agreement betwixt them. The particulars wherein every 
body with pleasure and wonder saw how they were agreed, and how 
like your famous Twins of Hippocrates, which you tell us would Flere 
et Midere simul [weep and laugh at the same time], were numberless. 
They lived a Virgin life, and in this good accord, reached about three- 
score years. Then Death after a short sickness arrested the one of 
them. The other grew full of pain, and bid her friends not be in a 
hurry about her sister's funeral for her's must accompany it. By dy- 
ing within a few hours after her sister, she answered their expecta- 
tions. Mr. John Cotton, the worthy minister of the place, preached 
a Funeral sermon for this occasion on those words, 2 Samuel 1 : 23, 
'In their Death they were not divided.' " 

III. William Moulton, born in England, about 1617; married 
Margaret, daughter of Robert Page (1) ; died Apr. 18, 1664. Their

882 HISTORY OF HAMPTON. 

"The Norris family is an ancient one in England, and some of its 
members located early in Ireland. Nicholas Norris, according to tra- 
dition, came from Ireland when a boy. He was born probably about 
1640. He was a soldier in garrison, in 1691, after he removed to 
Exeter. The last mention of him on public records is of deeding 
away land in 1721, about which time he probably died. Among his 
descendants was Hon. Moses Norris, of Pittsfield, U. S. senator from 
N. H. He had children born in Exeter, viz. : Moses, 1670. Jona- 
than, 1673. Abigail, 1675. Sarah, 1678. James, 1680. Elizabeth, 
1683." 

II. Timothy Osgood Norris, son of James and Martha (Osgood) 
Norris, of Raymond, was born Aug. 14, 1812; graduated at Dart- 
mouth College, 1840 ; principal of Hampton Academy, 1842-1854 ; 
unmarried while here. His eldest sister, Mary Norris, born Mar. 6, 
1796, married Thomas Wason ; lived for a time in Hampton ; died in 
Raymond, 1869. His brother, Daniel L. Norris, was the father of 
Mrs. Warren Brown, of Hampton Falls. 

Sometime after Mr. T. 0. Norris left Hampton his health failed and 
he went to Iowa. He recovered and taught school successfully in 
that state. . He died in 1891, leaving a widow and two daughters, in 
Troy, Iowa. He was highly esteemed in Hampton, and his memory is 
cherished by those who knew him as teacher and citizen. (See Chap. 

XXVIII.) 

III. "William Norris and family came to Hampton from Notting- 
ham, N. H. ; settled on the estate bought of heirs of Thomas Lane, 
on the North Hampton road. His daughter, Laura A. Norris, was for 
several years a teacher in Hampton. His son, Abbott Norris, kept a 
store several years in North Hampton, but now lives on the homestead 
in Hampton. The latter has children: Elizabeth B., teacher of the 
Hampton grammar school and member of the board of education.

where he was baptized Jan. 6, 1629. Roger, his father, baptized June 
11, 1598, died in the same town, and was buried Dec. 24, 1630. Soon 
after, Joane, his widow, was married to Henry Dow, who, in the spring 
of 1637, emigrated lo New England, and a few years afterward settled 
in Hampton. Mrs. Dow died when her son, Thomas Nudd, was about 
eleven years old ; but he still continued in the family of his step- father ; 
and Oct. 3, 1649, he being then "grown to man's estate," Mr. Dow, 
in fulfilment of a promise made to his wife at the time of their mar- 
riao-e, ''that he would treat her sou as his own child," conveyed to him, 
by a deed of gift, ten acres off the easterly side of his home lot, and 
some tracts of fresh meadow and of salt marsh, and one share in the 
cow-common. Mr. Nudd built a house, and lived upon the first of 
these tracts, and there has been the home of some of his posterity till 
the present time — Mrs. Sarah (Nudd) Shaw, the mother of George 
F. Nudd, the last occupant of the name, who died in 1888, still resid- 
ing; there.

OLIVER. 

I. Richard Oliver's name is on the Court Records as of Hampton, 
Oct. 9,1666. In August of that year, Edward Colcord had mortgaged 
property to him. An Indian child was bound to him by action of the 
court. In 1667, James Pendleton, of Portsmouth, sold to Richard 
Oliver, of Hampton, "a house & p r cell of land formerly in possession 
of Nath 1 Boulter, of H. & set off by execution to s d Pendleton." 

Juue 16, 1667, William Taylor and wife, Anne, of Exeter, sold to 
Richard Oliver twenty acres of land near Ass brook. Boulter had 
formerly lived in Exeter, and perhaps the house and parcel of land 
conveyed to Oliver adjoined the Taylor property near Ass brook. It

was not probably Boulter's home on Rand's hill, for that was sold by 
Pendleton to John Smith, the tailor, in 1673. 

At the Hampton Court, Oct. 8, 1667, "Mr. Richard Oliver, being 
presented for fighting w th Jno Redman & breakeing y e peace, did in 
court acknowledge y e same : the court fines him for his offence 6 s 8 d ."

I. Robert Page, the first of the name in Hampton, was a son of 
Robert and Margaret Page, of Ormsby, in the county of Norfolk, 
England, where he was born about 1604. His wife's name was Lucy. 
The record of their examination, April 11, 1637, preparatory to leaving 
England, gives his age as thirty-three years, and hers as thirty years. 
They, with three chil Iren, "Francis, Margarett and Susanna, and two 
sarvants, William Moulton aged 20 years and Anne Wadd, 15 years, 
were desirous to passe into New England to inhabitt." He settled in 
Hampton in 1639, having received a grant of ten acres of land for a 
house -lot, lying between the house-lots of William Marston, on the

house Green, on the south, and other land of his, on the north. This 
is still the home of the daughters of Josiah Page, a descendant, of the 
sixth generation. 

Goodman Page was one of the selectmen six years. He represented 
the town in the General Court of Massachusetts, two years ; was 
at one time marshal of the old county of Norfolk. He was also a 
member of various committees raised by the town from time to time. 
In 16G0, we find him one of the deacons of the church, and from the 
death of his colleague in 1671, to his own death, he appears to have 
been the only deacon. He died Sept. 22, 1679, aged seventy-five.

PERKINS. 
A few months after the settlement of the town, there were living 
in Hampton, two men of the name of Perkins, with their families. 



908 HISTORY OF HAMPTON. 

According to tradition, these men, Abraham and Isaac, were broth- 
ers — which is very probable, though we may not be able to verify it. 
They appear to have come at nearly the same time, and the house- 
lots, assigned to them by the town, adjoined each other, each con- 
taining five acres. Isaac's house was on nearly the site of the Bap- 
tist parsonage, and Abraham's between that and the corner lot west- 
ward, which then belonged to William English. 

I. Abraham Perkins, born about 1613 , was admitted freeman May 
13, 1640. In January preceding, the town granted him eighty acres 
of land; and in 1646, three shares in the commons. He was often 
employed in business for others and for the town. His handwriting 
is remarkbly neat and legible, and is more modern in appearance 
than most of the old penmanship. He was marshal in 1654. He 
seems to have remained through life where he first settled. He died 
suddenly, Aug. 31, 1683, aged seventy years. His wife, Mary, died 
May 29, 1706, aged eighty-eight years. Their children : 

Mary, bp. Dec. 15, 1639; m. Giles Fifield (2). 

Abraham (6), b. Sept. 2, 1G39. It lias been claimed that he was the first 
white child born in H., but at least one other, Peter Johnson (2) was 
bp. earlier, and perhaps born here. He m. Elizabeth Sleeper ; was killed 
by Indians, June 13, 1677 (p. 221). 

Luke, b. 1641 ; m. 1663, wid. Hannah Cookery, dau. of Eobert and Eliza- 
beth Long; lived in Charlestown, Ms. Their son, Luke, m. Martha, dau. 
of Lot Conant, of Plympton, Ms., and had a son, Mark, whose son, 
Isaac, was the father of Dr. Cyrus Perkins, professor in Dartmouth Col- 
lege and later a practising physician in New York city. 

Humphrey, b. Jan. 23, 1642 ; d. young.

Humphrey (9), b. May 17, 1661; m. Martha Moulton; d. Jan. 7, 1712. 

II. Isaac Perkins lived for more than ten years where he first 
settled. In June, 1652, Rev. Timothy Dalton sold to him, for fifty 
pounds, his farm (granted first to his son, who died,) lying next Salis- 
bury line (in Seabrook) ; and Perkins probably removed thither soon 
after. He died Nov., 1685. His wife's name was Susanna. Their 
children :

PHILBRICK.— PHILBROOK. 

I. Thomas Phii.brick was married and had children, who were 
grown up before his emigration. On his arrival in New England, he 
went to Watertown and after a few years' residence there, the whole 
family removed to Hampton, though not all at the same time. The 
order in which the children are here named may not be the order of 
their births. His wife Elizabeth died Feb. 19, 1664. Mr. Philhrick 
probably died in 1667, as his will was proved on the 8th of October in 
that year. Children :

%a part of the homestead of Dea. James Perkins. He and his wife and 
daughter Sarah, with five other persons, were lost at sea, soon after 
their vessel left Hampton river for Boston (p. 57). His wife's name 
was Ann. Children:

Sen. who retained it through life. It has never since been alienated ; 
is now owned by John A. Philbrick, of the eighth generation. The 
deed bounded it westerly, by William Fifield (now, heirs of Alfred 
J. Leavitt) ; easterly, by John Brown (nowZaccheus Brown). After 
the above conveyance, Sergeant Philbrick removed to the south part 
of the town, now Seabrook, and settled on what is known as the 
Joseph Philbrick place.

ried Dec. 1, 1674, Hannah, daughter of Isaac Perkins (2) ; lived on 
the homestead. He engaged much in town business, as selectman, 
surveyor, lot-layer, and in other capacities. From 1690 to 1700, his 
books show him to have been trading between Martha's Vineyard and 
Hampton, in lumber, wood, hides, spices, molasses, iron and wooden 
ware, cloths, cutlery and other merchandise. He was once taken on 
the high seas, by a French privateer, which captured his vessel as a 
prize. A storm arising, he magnanimously guided his captors to safe 
harborage, and in gratitude, they gave him back his vessel. During 
the storm, he begged them to spare an old Bible they were about to 
throw overboard. That Bible is now owned by Joseph A. Philbrick.

THE SAMBORNE FAMILY IN ENGLAND. 

BY V. C. SANBORN, CHICAGO, ILL. 

The name Samborue, spelt also Sambourne and Sandbourue, is 
found in England as the name of a place and as a family name. As 
the name of a place : (A) In Warwickshire ; — a hamlet a few miles 
from Alcester, of which Dusdale says : " Of this place, having its 
original denomination from that little sandy brook, nigh unto which 
it stands, I find very ancient mention, viz., in anno DCCXIV, it 
being then (inter aliis) given to the monks of Evesham, by Egwin, 
Bishop of Worcester, upon the foundation thereof." (B) In Wor- 
cestershire ; in the parish of Kiddeminster. (C) In Yorkshire; 
mentioned in Bawden's Doomsday for Yorkshire : " In Sabura 
(Sanburn) there are three carucates : Ralph Paganel holds it. The 
canons say they themselves had it in the time of Edward." (A caru- 
cate is about 100 acres). (D) The name Sombourn exists also in 
Hampshire — possibly an allied name. 

As a family name : If the name of this family were taken from their 
lands, that fact would be indicated in old records prior to 1300 ; but 
none such yet appear, except that, in 1211, the Wiltshire "Placite" 



GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL. 941 

speak of a Julian de Saudcburne, which may be a mistake for Sande- 
burne. The next mention of the name is in 1333, Robert de Sam- 
bourne being that year incumbent in Somersetshire. After 1350 the 
name appears more frequently and there are several pedigrees in the 
Heralds' Visitations. There appear to have been two branches of 
the family: — one, settled at Sunning, in Oxfordshire; the other, at 
Timsbury, in Somersetshire. [See Gen. Reg., July, 1885.] 

The arms of the Samborne families are the same, viz. : Argent, a 
chevron sable between three mullets gules, pierced or. Three crests 
are given : 1. Samborne, — a dexter hand holding a sheaf of arrows, 
all ppr. 2. Samborne of Moulsford, Berks., a bull's head holding 
in the mouth three ears of wheat, all ppr. 3. Samborne of Timsbury 
House, a mullet gules, pierced or. 

The following pedigree is compiled from various sources, and 
brings the family down to the generation following that of John (?) 
Samborne, the father of the three American emigrants.

1390; married Anne, daughter and heir of Sir William Lushell, Kt.

garet, who married Sir William Windsor, ancestor of the Earls of

XV. John Samborne, supposed to be the father of the first three 
American Sambournes — described in the London Visitation of 1687, 
as a merchant, with his brother Richard (13). The Sambornes in 
England were very few, in 1620, and indeed, no branches have been 
traced, except those given above. 

John Samborne was born about 1590, and probably removed to 
London with his two brothers by 1615; but the family ties were in 
Dorsetshire, the next county to Hampshire, where lived Rev. Stephen 
Bachiler, whose daughter married the father of the first three Ameri- 
can Sambornes. In 1630-31 we find her a widow, living in the Strand, 
in London ( Waters' Gleanings). 

SANBORN. 
John, William and Stephen Sanborn, brothers, were grandsons of 
Mr. Steven Bachiler, the first pastor of the church in Hampton. Ac- 

1 The State Papers between 1650 and 1660 contain frequent references to these brothers, 
who were merchants in France and loyalists who aided in the Restoration. Thomas was in 
Morlaix and John, in Rouen and Caen. Clarendon's State Papers contain letters which 
passed between the Lord Chancellor and John Samborne, who appears to have been high 
in lavor with the court. " Petition, dated July, 1660, of Thomas and John Samborne, mer- 
chants, for the nomination of one of them as commissioner in the Excise Office. They have 
done great service in the late war, in relieving persons of quality and others related to His 
Majesty; they have had several commissions from the late and present king; supplied 
munitions, etc., to the value of £25,000; were banished and sold their inheritance, for fear 
of sequestration. On the king's escape from Worcester and lauding in Rouen, John Sam- 
borne was the only person to whom he trusted the secret of his arrival," etc., etc. [Cal, 
State Papers, 1660.] 



944 HISTORY OF HAMPTON. 

cording to tradition, their father died in England, leaving these sons 
and their mother to the care of Mr. Bachiler, her father, and they all 
came to New England with him in 1632, and about six years later, 
to Hampton. Such is probably the general belief; but no evidence 
is found that the mother of these young men ever came to America. 
It seems pretty evident that her home was not in Hampton at the 
time of " seating the meeting house," in the early part of 1651, as 
no seat was then provided for her ; and her name is not found in the 
recorded list of deaths in the town ; nor is any allusion made to her 
in any of the old papers examined. 

The three brothers named were here and all of them in possession 
of house-lots as early as 1644. Their names are all on a tax-list of 
1653, and all held town offices. Stephen, however, did not make 
Hampton his permanent home. In 1655 he resigned the office of 
selectman several months before the expiration of his term, for the 
purpose, it is said, of accompanying his grandfather Bachiler in his 
return to England. The date, of leaving New England is not known. 

John Sanborn, one of the immigrants, received for a house-lot, 
partly by grant from the town, and partly by gift from his grand- 
father, Mr. Bachiler, four acres of land, which appears to have been 
a part of what constituted the homestead, in later years, of Dea. Alvin 
Emery. His house is said to have stood a few rods further west 
than the one now on the lot. 

William's house-lot is described in the Town Records, as follows : 
" 1. Imp 1 five acres of upland for a house lott : and three quarters 
of an acre of ground aded to the south end therof : layeing together 
between the grown d of John Browns toward the east, & the grownd 
ofAquila Chases, sometimes Steven Sanborns in p r t : & grownd of 
William fifilds sometimes the afore[sayd~| Steuen Samborns in p r t 
toward the west; abutting upon a commonway toword the north; & 
a certaine swamp toword the south : more or lesse as it is la} r d out." 
This is now John A. Philbrick's homestead. 

Stephen's house-lot, sometime before 1644, was on the westerly 
side of his brother William's ; but at that date, it appears to have 
passed out of his possession. In 1653, he was probably living near 
his brother John. 

I. John Sanborn, born in England, married , daughter of 

Rev. Stephen Bachiler, and died in his native country. Children :

ter in life, on what is now known as Shaw's Hill, on the road leading 
from the school-house in the easterly part of the town, to Little River. 
His was then a frontier house, no other family living so remote in 
that direction from the main settlement. From him and his descend- 
ants that part of the town was called Sleeper-town (since coirupted 
into Sleepy-town). He died July 30, 1696, and his family after- 
wards removed to the newly incorporated town of Kingston, where

early in Hampton. Robert is. thought to have been living in Boston 
in 1638, when our town was settled ; while John, if born, must have 
been a boy, in the island home of his parents. 

Two individuals of the name, not apparently connected with either 
family, were also living here at an early period. From the mention 
of both among the people concerned in the witchcraft trials, it seems 
probable that they may have been brother and sister. These were 
Nathaniel and Ann Smith. 

The Salisbury Court Records contain the following, dated Apr. 1 0, 
1677 : ''Nathaniel Smith being given to Dea. W m Godfrey & his wife 
Margerie as their own & they having kept him from a child, Dea. God- 
frey being now dead & his widow having married John Marian, the 
court order that Smith shall continue & abide w th the s d Marion & 
wife until he comes to y e age of one & twenty yeare & shall do them 
faithful service." 

Nathaniel Smith, "aged about twenty years," was one of the wit- 
nesess in the trial of Goody Fuller, for murdering John Godfrey's 
child by witchcraft (p. 85). His deposition was taken July 14, 1680. 
On the thirty-first of the same month, an inquest was held on his dead 
body, and the verdict rendered was: "We found him in a canoe at 
the landing place, with his face bloody ; and we, washing and search- 
ing him, do judge that water was the cause of his death, by drown- 
ing." 

Ann Smith was alleged to be a victim of Goody Cole's wiles (p. 80) . 
The year that Goody Cole died, Ann Smith, probably the same Ann, 
married Israel Clifford (4). 

Henry Smith is also mentioned (p. 363). 

I. Robert Smiih, born about 1611, was of Exeter, and a signer 
of the Combination, in 1639. He settled in Hampton as early as 
1657, his homestead being where Joseph Johnson now lives. He 
was by trade, a tailor. Susanna, his wife, was killed by lightning, 
June 12, 1680. He died Aug. 30, 1706. We find no record of his chil- 
dren's births, and the following list may not be complete, nor ar- 
ranged in order of age. Children :

TOWLE. 

Philip Towle, the patriarch of the Towle families, now numerous 
in New England and elsewhere, came to Hampton as early as 1657. 
He is said to have been of Irish extraction ; and the locality in Hamp- 
ton largely owned and settled by his posterity, was on that account, 
early called Ireland, a name it still retains. The time and place of 
his embarkation for America are unknown. Apr. 15, 1664, he bought, 
as is expressed in his deed, "one messuage, or dwelling house, with 
other out-housing therevnto belonging; as also a house Lott ad- 
joyning thereunto, containing by estimaccon seven acres and a halfe 
more or less (being formerly the house and land of Henry Ambrose) 
butting upon the highway leading to Exiter with one end, and with the 
other end upon the land of John Marian, lijng between the lands of 
the sayd John Marian on the west and the land of Jasper Blake east- 
erly." The house-lot here described has ever since remained in the 
Towle family, and is now John A. Towle's homestead. Before he 
settled down to farming, Mr. Towle probably led a sea-faring life, as 
in the deed he is styled "seaman." On one occasion, he and five 
others, "for taking tobacko neare y e meeting house in y e face of y e 
court, were fined, each of them, ten shillings according to law." 

I. Philip Towle, married Nov. 19, 1657, Isabella, daughter of
